George Strait recently helped raise more than $1.5 million for hurricane relief efforts on Monday (Nov. 25). Strait headlined a two-hour set at ACL Live in Austin, Texas, hosted by the Discovery Land Company Foundation and Driftwood Golf & Ranch Club in support of Abaco Relief. Patty Griffin opened the show.

A frequent visitor to the Bahamas, Strait partnered with the Discovery Land Company Foundation to help the local people receive assistance immediately following the devastation caused by Category 5 Hurricane Dorian, and they continue to work together to raise funds to aid recovery.

Fans can continue to help raise funds by purchasing the exclusive t-shirt which Strait wore on stage throughout the night. The shirt design features a play on his chart-topping song “Ocean Front Property” together with the colors of the Bahamian flag. Shirts are $20 and all proceeds benefit Abaco Relief.
